  • A dainty pearl pendant – A pearl pendant on a classic silver or gold chain is the ultimate everyday necklace and adds subtle sophistication to any outfit.
  • A Pearl Ring – With its neutral color and warm luster, a pearl ring makes a stunning statement on its own, while also pairing well with other rings or bracelets.

How to Wear Pearls for a Night Out

Some occasions call for an extra dose of style. Up the ante on your next night out with pearls that take an outfit from predictable to head-turning.

  • Layered Pearls – Turn a basic outfit into a night out look by layering strands of pearls of varying sizes and lengths over a simple dress of blouse with a dark wash jeans.
  • A Knotted Pearl Necklace – Long strands of pearls are typically worn for more formal occasions, but can easily be dressed down by knotting the strand.
  • A Pearl Necklace Wrapped into a Bracelet – Take a festive approach to the pearl bracelet by wrapping a pearl necklace around your wrist multiple times until you’re able to clasp it without the bracelet slipping off.

How to Wear Pearls to the Office

Keep pearl accents in the office clean and simple with single strands that add a touch of elegance to your business casual attire.

  • A Single Strand Pearl Necklace – Depending on the neckline of your top, wear a choker or matinee length necklace for the office. For example, a choker may look better with a button-down blouse, while a crew neck top may look better with a matinee length necklace.
  • A Single Strand Pearl Bracelet – For a more understated approach to pearls in the office, opt for a classy pearl bracelet.

You’ll look back on photos of your big day for the rest of your life. Make sure your jewelry is timeless by selecting the perfect pearl pieces.

  • Pearl Drop Earrings – These are a classic wedding jewelry choice and can be found in a range of styles, from simple to extravagant.
  • Pearl and Diamond Pieces – Whether it’s earrings, a necklace, bracelet or right-hand ring, any piece that combines both pearls and diamonds exudes bridal elegance.
  • Heirloom Pearls – Pearl jewelry is often passed down within families for generations. If your family has a wedding-worthy pearl heirloom, wear it on your big day as your “something old.”
